Because Jesus sought to find me so I could truly live, redeemed in love. This is my life: the questions, ramblings, adventures, prayers, and thoughts, all with Jesus, from here and into eternity. Welcome to the stories.
This is my friend Maddie’s photo from her recent trip to South Asia. As I look at pictures my heart starts to long to be in this place already. I know life is going to look very different. I know I am going to be uncomfortable and have a lot of adjusting to do. But the Gospel must be preached. And lives must be saved. Here’s to two wonderful years about to unfold!
The Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time

A quote that has convinced me time and time again that there is no better time than now for me to go into the nations with the Good News of Jesus. How can they know if they cannot hear? Thankful for the opportunity to move to Southeast Asia in pursuit of Jesus :)
I’m currently sitting at my gate at the Oakland airport getting ready to board soon and I can’t believe the time has come to go back to Kansas City already. After an incredible week revisiting Davis and experiencing Gods faithfulness in a place that taught me so much about Him, I’m excited to begin this next season of like. Two weeks touring CA college campuses to call students to missions, three months of training and the prayer room and then a 2 year deployment for overseas missions. How did I get to be so blessed to do the work that I do? ‘Missionary’ was never a common word in my vocabulary but now it’s the only job title I see fitting in this season of life. Thank You Lord for encountering my heart and leading me to make Your Name famous in the nations. May the Lamb who was slain receive the reward of His sufferings.

Lord of the Harvest, ekballo laborers to the harvest field.
Traveling through Africa and praying as I go. Life will never be the same. Praise The Lord!
This is the A-Team. My family. The forerunners. We are going into the hardest and darkest places because Jesus is worthy. Two teams left today, my team and two others leave tomorrow. One final team on Wednesday. Pray for us. It’s a privilege to be doing this work with Jesus with this company. My heart is full.
